Through the Tourism Safety Initiative, we have been working closely with industry-role players around the ORTIA precinct to address issues of safety and security affecting tourists and tourism businesses.
From a destination reputation perspective, the news of the heist has cast a shadow of doubt on the level of security at our airports. Given the pivotal role that ORTIA plays as an important regional (and international) airline and tourism hub, it is incumbent for all of us to be more vigilant and protect the people going through this important hub and visiting the country.
